Although gas prices are more consistent than they have been in years past, filling your gas tank can still be hard on the pocketbook. With constant driving, carpooling, and traveling to work, you can watch you gas gauge go down daily. Thus, it is important to have the most efficient gas mileage through routine vehicle servicing.

Gas mileage can be improved when regular car maintenance is properly done. Some vehicle owners put off sending their car for routine service, considering it is just an expense rather than an investment. Many don't realize that regular car tune ups can help maintain consistent and efficient gas mileage. It is recommended that most cars should be routinely tuned up at 30,000, 60,000 and 90,000 mile intervals. During scheduled maintenance, other components of your car that affect your gas mileage are inspected.

Spark plugs with faulty wiring can increase gas usage which makes it imperative to check regularly and defective oxygen sensors can also lower your gas mileage by 40% making replacement necessary. Dirty air filters must also be replaced because this can help improve your gas mileage too, as can the proper tire pressure.
